YOUNG LAWYER OF THE MONTH
Tamiel S. Holloway recently relocated from New England and established her legal practice, Holloway Firm, in Southern California. Tamiel’s current areas of practice include Family Law, Immigration, Probate, and Special Education. Tamiel is licensed to practice law in California, Massachusetts and New Mexico.
Tamiel graduated from Boston University School of Law. As a law student, Tamiel participated in two Immigration Law Clinics where she assisted immigrant detainees, children seeking special immigrant juvenile status and asylum seekers. Tamiel also served as an intern for the Los Angeles Dependency Lawyers and clerked for the Honorable Judge Geraldine Hines. Judge Hines is now serving on the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court. After BU LAW, Tamiel worked at the talent agency William Morris Endeavor and upon receiving her license, worked as an immigration attorney and family law public defender.
She received her undergraduate degree in International Relations from University of Southern California (USC). While in undergrad, she studied abroad in Spain and served as a newspaper intern in Mexico. As a result of her global endeavors, she earned the USC Global Scholar distinction. She was also a recipient of the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship and a four-year Scholarship Recipient of the Justice Unity Generosity and Service organization. She is a member and scholarship recipient of the honor society, Alpha Lambda Delta. When Tamiel graduated from USC, her name was added to the USC Wall of Scholars. After receiving a Bachelor of the Arts in International Relations, Tamiel returned to Spain to teach English to children and adults. As a result, she is fluent in Spanish.
Tamiel has learned that the best way to gain experience in an interest area is to jump into it. She implores other young attorneys to consider opening their own practices sooner rather than later in their careers. With supportive mentors, building a practice is an attainable goal.
